The list of speakers and trip leaders at this year's MBS is not only impressive--it reads like a Who's Who of the birding world: Dr. Pamela C. Rassmussen, Kevin Carlson, George Armistead, Sharon Stiteler, Alvaro Jaramillo, to name a few. You'll be listening to, learning from, and walking alongside some of the most respected experts in ornithology with subjects such as birding by listening, wood warblers, gull ID, birding ethics, managing a NWR wetland, digiscoping, and much more. Attend a multi-media presentation by Josh Hoss that chronicles his Big Green Year, where he saw 200 species while traveling only by bicycle! Or meet John James Audubon, as portrayed in a special program by Brian "Fox" Ellis. View the current list of scheduled programs here.
